NRC Manufacturing Said to Be Opening Facility in Elk Grove

March 25, 2016 |

According to report filed this morning by Sacramento Business Journal, the City of Elk Grove expects Fremont, Calif.-based NRC Manufacturing to open a facility in the city that could employ up to 2,500 workers.

According to its website, NRC is leading contract manufacturer of circuit board assembly. One of its primary customers is Apple Computer.  

“It’s a game-changer,” Davis told the Business Journal in advance of the formal announcement expected this afternoon. “The fact we got them to focus on Elk Grove and come over the hill to a place of high-quality life and a better cost of doing business is a great win, not only for Elk Grove but the entire region.” 

In its initial operation, NRC expects to employ about 600 workers and could eventually have as many as 2,500 on its payroll. The company is believed to be located in the city's Southeast Policy area, also know as SEPA, with a 50,000 sq. ft. facility.

The second sentence of the article says "The city has not granted any tax breaks or other financial incentives so far, officials said." It doesn't mean there won't be incentives but at this point, it doesn't seem like there are any.

I should have added. I would expect there will be some incentives as a deal of this size would normally have some.

Thank you Apple. A great logistic move to have their manufacturing supplier close to headquarter.

Gary Davis initially approached this company and then turned it over to Darrel Doan to negotiate the details.

We criticize when it is due, and quite vehemently at times; but we also have to give credit where credit is due.

This is good news for Elk Grove and also good to know that the SEPA will, indeed, have a large commercial area as promised.

Let's hope this is the beginning of more, including Elk Grove becoming the hops growing capital of the world!

As long as they preserve the Rural Area, it's all good.
